In a season where Kyle Korver’s three point shooting has at times seemed inhuman — a “slump” has him down to 49.8 percent from three on the season, taking six threes a game — this may be his best shooting display.
The only reason it wasn’t 12 points in 65 seconds is his foot was on the line on one shot.
You see in this video what has made Korver an All-Star this season — he runs the floor hard, he gets to his spots, he works hard off the ball, he’s constantly moving to get open, and he has a quick release. He is part of what makes the Atlanta attack dangerous; you have to always account for him. In transition, on the weakside, wherever he is you can’t leave him, or the ball finds him and then finds the net.
